I have Backup Exec set to backup 3 directories in the D drive on a server with a total of 5 directories on the D drive.  Whenever the job runs, Backup Exec builds *.bkf files in those three directories that I have chosen to backup.  After 3 or 4 days, the server runs out of space on D, and I have to delete all the bkf files to get the space back.  Each bkf file is about 1gb.  I don't know what these files are for, or why BackupExec is creating them while the backup job is running.  I tried to see if there is a way to turn the file creation off if it is not needed.
